Dublin Port is a major port positioned close to the centre of Dublin. It was historically responsible for a lot of freight traffic entering the streets of Dublin, but now it is connected to the Dublin Port Tunnel, things have improved considerably.

The main access to the port is along Promenade Road. Tolka Quay Road is the old entrance, and the main dual carriageway running through the port site. Alexandra Road now mainly serves the industrial areas, but it still stands out for its unusual feature of having an active railway line running down the middle.

Terminal 3 is a bit of a poor relation, with its entry and exit being direct from East Wall Road southbound only, which can cause congestion when a ship unloads.
